Aspirations

At my son's place for Thanksgiving
Backwards in time
Relaxing
All sense of display

Now we're Home

The new Christmas tree is bare
waiting in its appointed corner
for its moments of glory

all lit up w/no place to go

We sit around, still stuffed
& content, for awhile,
thanks to the energies of other beings
sacrificed to our human needs
until the next wave of celebrating
presents itself

Hey, isn't there always something
to look up to?

Aaaah, someone else that puts up their tree close to Thanksgiving. They are so much work I like to have them up from Thanksgiving to Epiphany.

Nice snapshot of your holiday - both visually and with words.
